30 Years of exercising on the Sand Dune

While enjoying the Dune as a workout destination has become more popular over the years, it has nevertheless been used by locals and professional athletes alike for this purpose since the late 1970’s as described by two Manhattan Beach residents at the time: “I remember back in 1978 when our Physical Education teacher at Central Junior High School would tell us about working out with some of the Los Angeles Lakers, like Kareem Abdul Jabbar to see if they could run all the way up the Dune” Donald Scoles “I can still remember the first time I was introduced to exercise on the Dune by a friend of mine in the 1970’s and have not stopped yet! I must have climbed the Dune over 5,000 times” Chuck Trucker
